Ah yes, the quilt. The top of it is all sewn together and I’m pretty happy with the way it’s turning out – although you can tell from the picture that it needs some love from the iron. To finish off the quilt, there’s a particular sewing machine foot that you need to do the stippling. It’s called a free motion foot. And I bought one on discount on etsy . . . and then my cat decided the foot was his new favorite toy and I can’t find it anymore. Ugh. The cat seems to love losing things for me. It could be under the piano, refrigerator, any of the rugs, the stove. . . who knows. I hope it turns up soon or I’m going to have to resort to begging my sewing friends to let me borrow theirs (if they have one). . .
I finally finished up the bibs this weekend too. They are such a quick sew, I don’t know what was taking me so long (oh wait, I remember, I was busy)! They’re from a free pattern found here. There are a bazillion free bib patterns out there and I think I want to try this one out next. . . You can’t have too many bibs, right?
And keeping up with my baby items that are really more useless than useful, I made another softie (with two more in the works that I can’t wait to share!). It’s another free pattern from Wee Wonderfuls. If you make this pattern, make sure you stuff the legs fuller than I did. I thought I had it full enough but the head is a bit top heavy and now my kitty looks like he’s going to pounce instead of standing up straight! I am still debating on adding a nose, mouth, whiskers, etc. . . I really kinda like him the way he is!
I’m also working on making a pattern for the ever popular Boppy. It seems silly for anyone to pay what they’re asking for it when I could easily whip one up on my own. Really, it’s just a u-shaped pillow with a slipcover. If my first attempt goes well, I’ll post the pattern and the picture! I’m sure someone out there could use a free pattern that mimics the Boppy, right?
